5. If you select the BDC service’s GUID in the connections pane and check its advanced
settings, you’ll see yet another long random GUID for its application pool name. Keep it in
mind (you can see mine in Figure 3.65).
The BDC Service
6. To check the application pools, double-click the Application Pools node in the connections
pane. In the workspace, you’ll see a pretty long list. Two of the application pool names
are just random GUIDs (compliments of Web Services service applications); one is named
after the web application you created, one is the SecurityTokenServiceApplicationpool,
and, of course, there is Central Administration.
7. To confirm the account identity for the application pools, you can scroll over in the
workspace (that middle pane) to see it listed per application pool, or you can select a
particular application pool in the connections pane and then click Advanced Settings
in the Actions pane.
For example, in Figure 3.66, in the IIS console you can see that SharePoint-80 is using the
account I assigned to it when making the web application, dem0tek\spfcontent.
Using the Advanced Settings dialog box gives you the added bonus of additional information
about the application pool. Select an application pool in the workspace, such as the one for the
BDC service (that long random GUID you saw earlier), and then click Advanced Settings in the
Actions pane. In the dialog box, the account identity that we assigned for the application pool
will be displayed (Figure 3.67), as well as additional information.
So, you’ve confirmed that your initial configuration of SharePoint is complete, and you are
now at the same point of configuration that we were with the Standalone installation, only
you’ve done most of it yourself.
